I was a Housewives addict, but after a few years of watching constant bickering and back stabbing, I'm not as loyal of a fan anymore.

I maybe tuned into a total of two episodes of  The Housewives of Atlanta this season - couldn't handle grown women acting like they're still in high school. I never see them do anything positive in their lives or for their community. Nene likes to say, "I'm rich." So give back and quit bragging. But, I will check out Kim's new show, Don't Be Tardy For The Wedding. She's the one in the group that has managed to stay out of the drama and focus on her family and new husband.                                                

My thought was to watch the Atlanta reunion show at the end of the season, but after a minute of hearing Nene run her mouth and pointing her giant finger, I was done with that as well.                    


Which brings me to Shahs of Sunset by Ryan Seacrest. I told myself not to tune in...don't need another show with ridiculous caddy women. "Hello we're Persian."  But, I've tuned in a few times and I really like it.

They are real working people, real friends with normal life issues, and they talk instead of screaming at each other. The cast consist of Reza, Mike, Sammy, Asa, GG and MJ.

Reza, is an openly gay man in the Persian community. He has had years of disconnect with his father - finally they had a heart-to-heart to repair their relationship -It was a touching and emotional episode.

 MJ  is successful with her real estate career, but she has a mother that is full of negativity. MJ confronts her mother about all the negativity she throws at her, but there is no changing her and her opinions. She told her MJ she wasn't successful and she wasn't marriage material. Ouch!

Mike Shouhed is single, Persian and Jewish, Asa Rahmati is artistic, free spirited, writes and records music. GG Gharachedaghi travels and shops saying that she's looking for a husband to take the burden off her father, and Sammy Younai is a residential developer in Beverly Hills that specializes in building multi-million dollar homes specifically for the Persian community.

Excited for next season!

Locs

Yesterday I went in for my hair consultation for my locs. It's a little overwhelming trying to decide the size of locs, but this is what I decided.

Tuesday is the big day and I can't wait!

It's interesting though the responses I get from people when I say that I'm getting locs. I've gotten everything from that's interesting to don't you just let your hair get really dirty and don't comb it?

I'm well aware of how most of the world stereotypes black women by their hair. I think I've shared in past blogs how people approach me or don't approach me depending on the style of my hair.

I decided a few years ago that natural was going to be it for me. No more chemical relaxers and no flatiron on my hair daily - I'm just going to do me and people can make all the prejudgements that they want. If you're going to make a decision about me based on my hair I don't want you in my life anyway.      

I decided to grow my hair out due to a bad h…

Have An Open Heart

As I was sorting through pictures this morning I came across pictures of my seven-year-old granddaughter with girls that she met for the first time on a 2 day stay in Prescott. I was drawn to the smiles on their faces and the love in their eyes. They met, accepted each other, and acted as if they had been lifelong friends. Oh, how I had forgotten about the innocence of a child. The color of skin, the size of a body, the structure of a face does not matter. They are ready to accept and love unconditionally until we and society teach them differently.


There was nothing but smiles and laughter as they danced, made beaded jewelry, and ate. They made sure that they all were a part of whatever they were participating in. They cared about each other's feelings and made sure that everyone was having fun and was happy. Why is it that we grow to become so obsessed with appearance and behavior of others that we miss seeing the light or the struggles in others?  We're so quick to judge b…

Words...

Boy am I happy for Monday!

I had a draining Sunday due to a situation that happened and stayed in my thoughts longer than it should have. So today I'm going to write about it and release it.

A gentleman around the age of 60 that had both legs amputated decided that myself and a coworker was his verbal punching bag. As he screamed at us he always managed to say, I'm an amputee in each sentence. We both remained as calm as humanely possible, and I mentally reminded myself as the horrible and hurtful words were spewing out of his mouth - hurting people often hurt people as a result of their unresolved issues. But, what I also was reminded of  how damaging words can be.

I went home and had dinner with my family, relaxed, and did my usual night routine, but I continued hearing his hateful words. I couldn't seem to shake those thoughts. It could be that I hadn't experienced behavior as such after I left home at 18, so I wasn't mentally prepared for it, or he triggered a…
